Cyberinfrastructure for Life Science and Beyond – Scaling your science with iPlant

This workshop is for biologists who are working with large datasets. It will feature talks, tutorials, and demos that will help you use free, NSF-funded resources developed by the iPlant Collaborative (#DBI-1265383) for a variety of data-intensive analyses (e.g. genome assembly and annotation, RNA-Seq, image analysis, GWAS, geospatial etc.). Users with limited bioinformatics experience, or experienced users who need access to greater HPC capacity will both benefit from attending. The workshop will feature an overview of available resources (data storage/sharing, web interfaces, cloud computing), presentations by researchers who have used these tools to solve problems, and how tool developers can make their tools and pipelines more accessible to the research community.
